Multi Bilderberg. Assassinated

Alfred Herrhausen was a German banker and member of the Bilderberg Steering committee. After pushing for a large scale debt cancellation. He was assassinated on his way to work "in a military operation of a complexity without precedent".[1]


Alfred Herrhausen was Chairman of Deutsche Bank.

Dept cancelation of "third world" countries

Alfred Herrhausen proposed and pushed for a large scale cancellation of African countries' debts and he was in a position to succeed in these "new ideas" which may have threatened the basic concept of dept enslavement or control of politics (open markets to foreign "investors") of these counties.


Herrhausen was a member of the Bilderberg Steering committee.


On November 30th 1989, a sophisticated bomb killed Herrhausen on his way to work, just about half a mile from his home. The bomb had been hidden in a saddle bag on a bicycle next to the road that the assassins knew Herrhausen would be traveling in his three-car convoy. In the bag was a 15 lb bomb that was detonated when Herrhausen's car interrupted a beam of infrared light as it passed the bicycle. The beam of infrared light had been disguised as road works forcing a slow down of the armored car enabling a precision strike. [2]

No one has ever been charged with the murder. For a long time, the German federal prosecutor office listed members of the German terror group Red Army Faction (RAF) as the only suspects. However, almost 20 years after the killing prosecutors started to focus more on the involvement of the Stasi, the former East German secret police.
